October was quite a month for us at Typefi.
Many of our team members spent almost three weeks on the road traveling to events, starting with the User Conference on 13 October.
And what a way to kick it off! It was incredible to finally be back in person with all of you after more than three years.
We were blown away by the response to the User Conference, and we have you to thank for that. The event was completely packed, with registration filling up almost a month in advance.
It was great to see so many familiar faces and meet new people too. We hope you got time to catch up with Typefi staff and partners, and chat with fellow Typefi users.
Barring any unforeseen circumstances, we hope to have another User Conference in 2023—and we hope you’ll join us! Keep an eye out for more details on that in the coming year.
We know there was a lot of information in the presentations. If you need a refresh on what was covered, or you weren’t able to join us, don’t worry—we made sure to record everything!
The videos and transcripts from the presentations are now live on the Typefi website.
The event kicked off with a short welcome address by Typefi CEO, Chandi Perera. From there, we went right into the presentations.
- To start, we got a Typefi product update from Typefi VP Product, Caleb Clauset. Caleb talked about everything we’ve been working on in the last few years. He also revealed publicly for the first time our new collaboration app called Project Marcoola.
- After that, we heard from Typefi Product Manager, Guy van der Kolk, about all the latest updates to Typefi Writer. Guy also revealed a few new Writer integrations with Word 365 and Google Docs, and XML authoring with Oxygen Web Author and Fonto.
- Following that, Damian Gibbs, Typefi Solutions Consultant, gave an informative presentation on publishing mathematics. He touched on all the complex pieces involved in the process, and the pros and cons of EPS images and MathML.
- To end the morning, Kevin Bird, Typefi Solutions Consultant, discussed how the Typefi team built a custom workflow for the World Health Organization (WHO) so that content can be created in a simple Word template without using Typefi Writer.
- After lunch, we returned to the ballroom for roundtable discussions with Typefi staff. Topics included Project Marcoola and content management, Accessibility, Standards, Authoring Tools, and Mathematics. Customers had the opportunity to ask questions about these topics directly to Typefi experts. These conversations could have continued until evening!
- When the roundtables finally finished, Jason Mitchell, Typefi VP Customer Experience, gave a Professional Services team update. He also discussed the recent rework of Typefi Cloud, and the new Managed Workflows for Standards service package.
- Finally, we heard from Marie Gollentz, Typefi Project Manager, on the new approach to project management at Typefi. Marie explained what this means and how it will improve the experience of working with Typefi.
To end the event, we adjourned upstairs to the mezzanine for a well-deserved cocktail. It was an enjoyable finish to a great event!
Thanks again to everyone who joined us. See you next year!
